Maurice Utrillo's chalky white buildings and Parisian cityscapes are instantly recognizable today, but the artist was still relatively unknown when this text was first published in 1925. After nearly a century, this important primary source has finally been translated into English.

In this monograph, the earliest written about the painter, the reader accompanies Gustave Coquiot and Utrillo as they wander the streets of Montmartre and drink in their favourite cafés. The author discusses Utrillo's childhood, influences, and technique, as well as his dealers, counterfeiters, and his problems with alcohol. He ends with a visit to Utrillo's studio.

A friend of Rodin and Toulouse-Lautrec, Coquiot was one of the first art critics to recognize and collect Utrillo's work. Three years after this book appeared, Maurice Utrillo was made a chevalier of the Legion of Honour.
